Dalton Gets $1 Million Donation For The Arts
Dalton officials want to make the site of the Lee Printing building a hub for the arts, culture and entertainment.   Those plans got a big boost thanks to a $1 million donation from a city resident. 

The donation will provide $300,000 for physical improvements at the site, including the construction of a "first class" performing stage and associated facilities. In addition, it provides for a $500,000 endowment that will distribute some $25,000 a year to support events and performances at the facility. The remaining $200,000 will be held for additional support.
